Nothing beats the feeling of freshly washed bedding straight off the line and onto the bed after they have been drying in the sun all day.

There is nothing like sleeping in gorgeously soft, crisp wrinkle-free bedding just like we experience in a hotel. As it is commonly known natural fibers such as cotton, bamboo and Linen tend to wrinkle (crease) quite easily, especially when they are new. 

The easiest way to get rid of the wrinkles on your is to iron the sheets which will 100% guarantee that the wrinkles however this may be quite time-consuming.


Read below for some simple tips for reducing wrinkles without using an iron.

Step 2 - Drying 


Remove your sheets from the washing machine quite promptly I like to do this as the cycle finishes. Give them a little flick before taking them out to the clothesline. 


Insiders Tip: Before hanging sheets to dry on the line avoid leaving them in a basket whilst waiting for the next load to be complete this may contribute  to the number of wrinkles in the sheets  


Allowing sheets to hang freely on the clothesline encourages the creases to fall.

Insiders Tip: I like to make the bed straight away after taking the sheets off the line and ensuring that the sheets are tucked in nicely and tight.

There are countless tips and tricks out there on the internet when reducing wrinkles in your sheets.

Some Recommend using a standard spray bottle filled with plain tap water and spritz the water lightly and evenly across the nearly made with the ends not yet tucked in. Then shake the top layer of the sheet until you can see the creases start to settle, then make the bed nice and tight.

I have noticed that some people have used bleach to remove the wrinkles from their cotton sheets, however, It is highly recommended to avoid the use of bleach or any other harsh chemicals.


Yes, it may whiten your sheets in the short- term and it may even take out those wrinkles. But bleach is such a harsh chemical, may cause the natural fibers of the sheets to snap which affects the life of your sheets and can cause yellowing in your sheets.

With proper care, a good pair of sheets can last for many years making your sheets from the Manchester Factory a great investment in your sleep and comfort
